Representative Jodey Arrington Supports President Trump’s Actions on DACA [INTERVIEW]
Thursday on The Chad Hasty Show, U.S. District 19 Representative Jodey Arrington joined the broadcast to talk about President Donald Trump's recent action rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy that was implemented by former President Barack Obama.
When asked by Hasty if he supports the president's move on the policy, and whether or not Arrington believes that Congress will actually do anything about the problem, Arrington replied,
First and foremost, the president was right on the money, and [Attorney General Jeff Sessions' statement on the matter] I agree with. [President Obama's implementation of DACA] was an unconstitutional action. It was circumventing immigration law. Obama was a rogue president, and there was too much lawlessness. Now we have eight hundred thousand DACA people who are, in my opinion, victims of immigration crime, and of a lawless president. We've got to now do something about it.
Arrington and Hasty also discussed the national debt ceiling, and disaster relief to the victims of Hurricane Harvey, and President Trump's bypass of Republican leadership, dealing directly with Democrat leaders on the issues.
Arrington said about the president's move,
I can understand why the president is frustrated and why he's trying a different tact.
